Magical Mystery Tour DVD confirmed
This from Beatles walk tour guide Richard Porter in London: News learnt at the recent McCartney gig at the Royal Albert Hall from a VERY reliable source – Magical Mystery Tour is coming out on DVD in November – with Let It Be following in 2014 (or possibly 2015, according to another source).
Also, a massive reunion of the extras in MMT (not just the three surviving coach passengers) is planned this month at West Malling Air field in Kent. The setup includes a Magical Mystery Tour coach (same model bus, painted a la the original), and the event is to be filmed by ITV for an October special about the film.
Of course, like the upcoming new edition “Yellow Submarine”, we’re hoping that Magical Mystery Tour will also be debuting on Blu-Ray for the collectors with high definition TV’s.
Last year, “Let It Be” director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who was making the rounds to promote his autobiography “Luck and Circumstance,” spoke about the film in an interview with radio station WNYC-FM.
“We have been been working on it pretty much every year for the last couple of years. And the plan is, at the moment, to have it come out, I think, in 2013,” Lindsay-Hogg said. So now it looks like 2014 or 2015.
